Arsenal has alot of average to good players but they don't have any elite guys. Besides maybe Cazorla(or maybe Theo) everyone on that squad is indistinguishable in terms of talent. Everyone in the midfield seems to be on the same talent. Their wingers are pretty much the same in terms of talent. Is Theo any better than OX? Is OX any better than Podolski?The other top guns in the league have elite talent.

Arsenal is a good squad but when you're in a league with Man U, Man City and Chelsea that can outspend anyone and spend over $100mil in a given transfer window you need to atleast compete with that. Signing guys like Chu Yung Park or Nacho Monreal isn't going to help you compete.

TBH, I don't think it's Wegner's fault either as the ownership places him as a puppet.
